    Edited: Just discovered a posting with similar questions to mine. Sorry for the repetition. Does anyone have a manual for the ECG-DR4 they could send me?

    Most of the web pages at http://www.j1sys.com/ are dead ends. Granted the home page says we're under construction but the last posting is November 2014 and before that February over a year ago.

    I've finally begun a head start on Christmas lighting after a hiatus of about 3 years and my ECG-DR4 doesn't talk on my network anymore.

    I can't find any user manuals on my system which is now WIN-7 and back then was WIN-XP. I think my router has been changed twice in that time.

    Instructions at http://auschristmaslighting.com/forums/index.php?topic=447.0 aren't that helpful when all the links to pictures are broken.

    I'll try and reset the IP to 10.10.10.10 but I'd like to be able to get the most up to date firmware for it.
    Thanks
    John

    Thanks. I had found the first "configuration wiki". Hadn't found the second "updating" which will also be very useful if I can get new firmware.

    And I have good news. I managed to configure WIN-7 to access the 10.10.10.10 network and after installing jumpers and rebooting I found the controller. Original IP was set to 192.168.1.125. My Router gateway is now on 192.168.0.1. A quick change, remove jumpers, reboot and it's alive.

    Attached is the System Info page. I have a PICKit 3 and ICD 3 so I could update firmware if there's anything newer.

    I will create a PDF document with the instructions, screens along with the WIN-7 dialogs required to allow Windows to have a secondary IP of 10.10.10.1 and post it here.

    Otherwise in a few weeks I'll have forgotten how to do it.

    Again
    Thanks
    John
